my policies, president obama and i both care about the middle class and the poor. that is not what people on the ground believe and i think that's attributed to the president's ad campaigns on the ground. i think it also is underscored by the 47% comments. but the other thing that was interesting here is in ohio, the president is leading mitt romney among women by 25 points. so, early on in the campaign all the talk we had about women's issues, the focus on women at the rnc and the dnc, that has clearly been a lasting problem for mitt romney, as well. a number from this poll, they asked who would be better on women's reproductive health issues, in ohio, the president led there by 29 points. so this has actually impacted quite significantly the campaign. >> if we take ohio as a microcosm for the country and say things have gone from not so great to pretty bad for romney in this month, month of september, two things jump out at me here about what's going on. number one is what crystal is talking about. poll numbers of middle class, working class voters saying we think romney favors t

needs to do something to catch president obama in key toss-up states including ohio where both candidates are campaigning today. in the latest "the new york times"/quinnipiac poll has the president up ten points in the buckeye ste. heashiton " h hi b eight. the president pulled ahead in florida and pennsylvania, as well. drastic times call for drastic measures. the romneyampaign is out with a new ad and just mney and the came camera. >> president obama and i both mi.e abo poor and mdlelass diens policies will make things better for them. >> but that is a tough sell with middle class voters who believe romney's economic policies only benefit the rich. is it time for romney 4.0? so, i dughi quinnipiac poll and a few things that were interesting and struck me. first of all, there's so many people have said this election is about the economy. and it is about the economy. but i would put a finer truth comb on that. i think it's about the future of middle class and going back t those nbers tha wusad in the quinnipiac poll, they asked people, who's -- obama and romney, who are they
it because that add news people and has an impact. i have seen both obama and romney suddenly tweaked or change language, or drop language that were called out by fact checkers because ultimately there was a decision that are that it doesn't really mean that much to us if we fix this. it will get less greece if we just tweak it a bit or change it on the margins. but the key thing that moves voters such as he apologizes for america, or obama with a ridiculous thing about the savings from the wars, which he says, and the same breath criticizes george w. bush for running wars on the credit card, he will say those like almost 1 cents after another without any since he is contradicting himself. there is polling there that says that's an effective line. it moves voters eric so it doesn't matter what the actual facts are. so that's, that's when -- >> i think fact checkers come to this with their own sets of thoughts and ideas and backgrounds. and any since he is trying to redefine what a fact is. pretty saying there are no objective facts, that it's just someone else's opinion about what we
are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle class. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message, because we can't afford another four years like the last four years. >> we don't usually play whole ads but this one makes it very clear, karen, that this is the kind of ad that you see from candidates who are really in trouble and trying to reconnect to voters and he clearly knows that he has a problem on that connection, that personal connection. >> yes. if he hadn't entitled his book "no apologies" there might be an apology in that ad for those comments. but the reason that he has a problem with an ad like this in a place like ohio, is that it is a state that has, in fact, seen some econo

to both president obama and mitt romney's events here in ohio. the president is in bowling green. mitt romney is in bedford heights. we'll go live to both locations. to new york, it is the one time of the year when nearly every world leader in the same place, a lot of them at least, the united nations general assembly. kings, prime ministers, ministers get a few minutes at the podium to address the rest of the world. they get their undivided attention unless, of course, certain delegations decide to walk out in protest or not even show up. well, that's what happened today at the american mission to the u.n. essentially did not show up as the president of iran walked in. more than just a minute or so. here's a bit of a speech a few minutes ago by president mahmoud ahmadinejad. it was not a redefined message by any stretch of the imagination. he pretty much repeated what he has said along the lines of western world nomination as he rallied against the western world as well as the united states. let's listen in as he talks about the u.n. as well. >> the need to remove the structural value
they can't -- it's -- the margs inhese stasre s t they need both obama to go down as they're going up. >> all right, mike. and apparently you've been deputized by "sports illustrated." you're here to reveal the new cover of "sports illustrated." >> what? >> there's a lot of goo news, good buzz inside the beltway. it's on the cover of "sports illustrated" this week. they're calling washington/baltimore america's unlikely new sports capital. seth davis, lanny son is writing in "sports illustrated" abo the beltway as the new spos surpower. we have the washington nationals tied with the reds for the best team in baseball. we have great hope for the redskins with this quarterback, rg3 which "spos illustrated" i hope he's better than that. >> yeah. it's definitely a moment. i can tell you as a yankee fan, the orioles are frightening at this point. >> aren't they something? >>ike allen, thanks so much. >> have a good week. >> a point of personal privile here. >> please. >> i want to hear about one story today and one story only. and i want to know what's going on in kansas. mika, do we have
seemingly joining in calls for the regular nfl referees to get back on the job. even president obama tweeting nfl fans on both sides of the aisle hope the ref lockout is subtle scent. that was a very, very sort of non-partisan, postcards and comment, but you think? in wisconsin governor scott walker even jumping into the union battle after catching a few hours of sleep. the packers game is just as painful. return the the real refs who are real union. it is a rare day whenee on something and an even rare day when they agree with thel lh said, they have to fire nfl replacement arrives because they were not good enoughor. up next ralph nader offering a scathing criticism of president obama. it's about that time. forty days out from the election. somehow he thinks -- well, will tell you about that. the key for sorting all this out and much more. we are joined by, oh, yes. we will be talking a long, politics, foreign policy and, of course, a presidential race between president obama and governor romney. it is getting better all the time. stay with us. >> third world dictators behave like
's to be expected that both sides are going to do what they can. you have three polls facing the romney team that they're trying to discredit in multiple ways. i think there's got to be some truth. president obama is up pretty substantially in a number of polls. women voters critically important. i think it puts the gop in a tough spot because here you have a guy who's defending the concept of legitimate rain or forceable rape as part of the that puts the party on defense when it comes to women voter vo. >> karen, think back. when you saw the latest poll up by ten points, are you smiling from ear to ear or what? >> you know what? i'm going tell you something. when i was at the dnc then and now i would be very concerned simile because you can't take anything for granted. i'm concern thad the president be outside of the margin of error in terms of his lead because i don't underestimate karl rove to steal the election. the tay party vote challenging students in ohio simile because they didn't put their dorm room number on their registrations. those kids are being subpoenaed to go to court. thos
that president obama has expanded his lead over mitt romney in three key swing states, including a higher. ohio's an electoral votes are critical to winning the white house. and both campaigns are targeting the buckeye state this week. rallying voters and flooding the airwaves with ads. >> my policies will make things better for them. >> he attacked millions of hard- working people. >> president obama worked hard to fire a young voters of bowling green state university where he slammed mitt romney on china. >> when you see these ads he is running, talking about china, it is like the fox saying "we need a more secure chicken coops." >> talk is cheap. you can be extraordinarily eloquent and describe all the wonderful things you can do. when you cut through the words, you can look at the record. >> a new poll shows the president is leading romney 53% to 43% in a via. >> the president leaves and 10 points in know i a. that is time to ring the alarm bells. you already see the end fighting in all i/o. >> the president is also leading in other swing states. the romney camp says its internal polling sh
and ipad paths. >> mitt romney and his running mate paul ryan in ohio. both campaigns in the state today. this comes as a new poll says president obama has an eight- point lead. >> tonight the president is in the news for a different reason. >> madonna took to the stage in d.c. why her comments have led to controversy tonight. >> plus, the outrage after the replacement officials. a former president ways into the matter. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> we are learning the story everyone is talking about. >> this issue even as the president weighing in tonight. >> a very heated. from being the buzz on twitter to the moment -- from the moment the game ended, to even politicians. the replacements in nfl has brought the nations together. -- nationthe final play of the game,there you have it. the officials should have called pass interference. instead, he fought for the ball. it appears he had it first but ruled a touchdown. >> i do not think it was a touchdown. i thought the pass was interceptedi thought the defender hit the ground before. >> give me a br
, with the topic itself or the time. and the question to both of you is, president obama was criticized for his huge until that comment. over how much credit we deserve in america. that's what we want to discuss for the next eight or nine minutes. you cannot, i want to give each one minute and i encourage you to share ideas and talk about it. ms. laura ann mclane kuster, wel start with you. >> well, i absolutely believe that it is the private sector to create jobs. i have been in the private sector for the last 25 years and since the last campaign, i have created my own business that we have found strategy for nonprofit fundraising. but i believe that the government does create an environment for businesses to grow. that is what tax policy is all about. the tax breaks that congressman charlie bass has voted for her, it was encouraging the production of fossil fuels and energy. i believe that what we need to do is give incentives, such as growing the economy here at home and the incentive for shipping jobs overseas. i think we need to end the uncertainty and it flows from the deficit. we have to
of muscling on both sides. i think it affected his relationship with barack obama for the first few years of his presidency, but i think now that they've sorted things out between themselves and i think he said, look, he loves being center stage. the clinton global initiative is huge. it's attended by almost as many world leaders as the u.n. general assembly. you have a guy who really isn't president but for all intents and purposes is a very influential world leader. somebody said to me, who needs who more? does barack obama need bill clinton more or does bill clinton need barack obama more? i think they need each other. bill clinton, the inflew enser. i think for barack obama there's no more effective, articulate defender of his right to be re-elected right now than bill clinton. >> okay. >> so along the same lines is a new poll, quinnipiac, "new york times" poll that shows mr. obama is up by 10 points in the state of ohio over mitt romney. is that for the efforts of obama's great campaigning or does it have more to do with bill clinton and that widely admired speech he gave at the dnc?
